Added DiffLines:

* {{Mockspiracy}}: [[spoiler:There was never any airline conspiracy trying to silence the survivors. Passengers just moved on to another world once they came to terms with their death.]]

Added DiffLines:

* INeverToldYouMyName: Claire's neighbour lets slip the name of Claire's patient/love interest Eric, which makes Claire realise she is in on the plane crash cover up/conspiracy... [[spoiler: in actual fact the neighbour is the ghost of Claire's dead Aunt pretending to be a neighbour, and she is trying to help Claire come to terms with the fact that she is dead and move on.... yeah it doesn't make any more sense if you watch the movie either.]]


* HollywoodPsych: Largely averted. Claire is new to practicing her psychology, but she largely operates under correct professional ethics [[spoiler:other than sleeping with one of her patients...]]

''Passengers'' is a 2008 psychological thriller starring Creator/AnneHathaway and Patrick Wilson.

Claire (Anne Hathaway) is a grief counselor who's been assigned by her mentor, Perry, to conduct therapy for a handful of survivors from a plane crash. She quickly learns that some of the passengers remember an explosion that is at odds with the official explanation by the airline representative, Arkin, who claims that it was a case of operator error. She's even more intrigued by one of the passengers, Eric (Patrick Wilson), who refuses therapy and seems to know things about Claire before meeting her. As she begins falling for Eric, the patients begin disappearing, one by one, leaving Claire to try to determine what's happening to her.
